UK Licenses & Schemes
Enterprise Investment Scheme
The Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS) is designed so that your business can apply to raise more money to help to expand in any capacity. For example, if you are a start up in Sweden (or anywhere overseas) your business can apply for ‘tax relief’ to investors who buy shares in your company. Goodwille can help with registering the scheme with HMRC but not the listing/raising of funds.
Through partnering with Goodwille, we will ensure that your business meets the general criteria to enrol onto the scheme, and thereafter to make the most out of the scheme. The general criteria are as follows:
- Has a permanent establishment in the UK (Subsidiary companies are not eligible for the scheme)
- Not trading on a recognised stock exchange
- Not controlling another company (except for its subsidiaries)
- Not a temporary entity in that there are no plans to close after a specific project has come to an end.
There are limits as to who can receive investment under the EIS, for example the application must be within seven years of the company’s first commercial sale. Goodwille can provide you more details on whether you will quality for the EIS scheme.
